A PHOTOGRAPHY student is exhibiting pieces inspired by historic buildings.

Ian Smith’s Unusual Listed Building Project is open to the public at Horwich Heritage Centre in Beaumont Avenue, until February 22.

The University of Bolton student’s body of work includes a timeline detailing the construction date of the buildings as well as activities recorded from the same time period.

Mr Smith said: “My aim was to construct a timeless exhibition, intended for display at a location within the community.

"That’s exactly what we’ve managed to achieve.”
